I’ve been doing sensory boxes with J since he was just a little guy, but I haven’t introduced them to Baby E yet. He’s 8 months old, and sitting on his own without support. He’s now a bit more capable to explore the box, so it’s time to put together one, just for him.
I simply cut up some extra fabric I had hanging around and put the scraps in our sensory box with a few shoe laces and some curling ribbon.
I sat him next to the box and he went to it immediately.
He waved the fabric in the air and examined each piece.
It didn’t take him long to dump the whole thing out and really go exploring.
He had a good time shaking the ribbons in the air, but I loved how he concentrated on each piece too.
My favorite part? When he decided to taste the fabric too!
This was super successful and I’ve pulled it out a few times since for him to explore and he continues to enjoy it.
I am so excited that we get to start the fun adventures of sensory boxes with him! Stay tuned because I’ll be sharing a few more soon!
